Preliminary, startling information is coming to light as the public awaits the pending release of the full “client list” kept by Jeffrey Epstein — the notorious child sex trafficker who died under mysterious circumstances while in custody in Aug. 2019.
The “client list” will reportedly show that celebrities and government officials participated in the “service” Epstein provided. RTM previously reported that the first information drop showed former JPMorgan executive (and later Barclay CEO) Jes Staley’s relationship with Epstein.
Staley and Epstein exchanged approximately 1,000 emails between 2008 and 2012. One profiled in the first information drop seems to indicate Staley’s preference for young women who dressed as Disney characters and Epstein’s desire to cater to his wishes.
Reportedly, Epstein “paid more than 20 sex trafficking victims from JPMorgan accounts, as the bank’s top executives repeatedly flagged troubling abuse allegations against him,” according to Fox News.
Law & Crime reported that in December, U.S. Virgin Island government officials sued JPMorgan Chase, alleging the financial firm was complicit in Epstein’s sex crimes. Recently unsealed information from that federal lawsuit noted:
“These women were trafficked and abused during different intervals between at least 2003 and July 2019, when Epstein was arrested and jailed, and these women received payments, typically multiple payments, between 2003 and 2013 in excess of $1 million collectively.”
In Dec. 2022, the U.S. Attorney General wrote: “Financial institutions can connect — or choke — human trafficking networks, and enforcement actions filed and injunctive relief obtained by attorneys general are essential to ensure that enterprises like Epstein’s cannot flourish in the future.”
Lending weight to the lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase, the legal complaint noted: “Epstein also withdrew more than $775,000 in cash over that time frame from JPMorgan accounts.”
The suit also notes that “Epstein was known to pay for ‘massages,’ or sexual encounters, in cash.”
Multiple young (often underage) victims were lured to Epstein’s large private compound on Little Saint James island, where they were abused and forced into sexual activities.
Last June, Ghislaine Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in prison for her involvement in luring young females to the island.
JPMorgan attempted to dismiss the lawsuit, noting that the Virgin Islands government had already settled with Epstein’s estate for more than $100 million.
The unsealed portions of the lawsuit reportedly show JPMorgan Chase executives noted troubling reports regarding their staff and Epstein but took no action.
In 2008, a Florida court convicted Epstein of procuring a child for prostitution and sentenced to a mere 13 months. The Fox News report noted that Epstein served most of his sentence via a minimum security work release program that allowed him to work out of his Palm Beach office.
Epstein was arrested again in June 2019 and found dead in a jail cell while awaiting trial in August 2019.
Epstein’s associate, modeling agent Jean-Luc Brunel, was found dead in a jail cell on Feb. 6 of this year.
